Ohio Receives $15 Million from DOL for 2012 Storm Relief

These funds will create temporary jobs for continued efforts to clean up nearly a year after the storm.

The Department of Transportation has granted more than $15 million to create 1,191 temporary jobs for workers to continue cleanup efforts in Ohio after a 2012 storm. The severe storms occurred between June 29 and July 2 of last year, and there is still recovery to be done throughout the state.

"Although it has been almost a year since Ohio was hit by devastating storms, cleanup efforts continue and the federal government continues to assist those efforts," said acting Secretary of Labor Seth D. Harris, in a DOL statement. "The grant announced today represents the Labor Department's commitment to help Ohioans rebuild their communities and their lives."

This is the second portion of the National Emergency Fund released for recovery after this storm. Last September, the fund was created with more than $21 million allocated for relief. Initially $6 million was released to create jobs. The funds released now will go to some of the 37 counties eligible to receive aid.
